The centre provides bilingual care through inpatient, outpatient and outreach services. Clients of all ages from New Brunswick and PEI and complex paediatric clients from Nova Scotia benefit from the centre’s services. The Stan Cassidy Centre provides treatment for complex autism spectrum disorder, spinal cord injury, complex stroke, acquired brain injury, and various neurological diseases such as muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy and spina bifida. Click here to view the centre’s patient orientation video.

Along with an Edmonton-based rehabilitation clinic, the Stan Cassidy Centre is one of only two rehab facilities in all of Canada that treats patients throughout their entire lifespan, from birth until death. At the age of 18 (or 21 if still in school), paediatric patients are seamlessly transferred to the centre’s adult team to ensure continuity of care.

The interdisciplinary team approach at the Stan Cassidy Centre ensures that all aspects of a patient’s needs are addressed. Medical and therapeutic disciplines collaborate daily to provide client- and family-centred treatment programs. Specialized devices are constantly being designed and manufactured on-site to meet individual patient’s needs.

The Stan Cassidy Centre for Rehabilitation is home to:

  • More transitional living suites than any other rehabilitation facility in Canada
  • The only rehabilitation engineering clinic east of Quebec
  • The only accessible driver assessment and training van in Atlantic Canada
  • The only fully functioning rehabilitation therapeutic park in Canada
